Nancy Romanowicz Cook ’76, professor of medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, is one of the alumnae featured in a series of posters now on display in the Integrated Science Complex.
As part of Holy Cross’ celebration of 40 years of coeducation, posters depicting women graduates from the natural sciences and math departments are currently on display in the Integrated Science Complex.
“We thought that the selection of alumnae from the different science departments would focus attention on the accomplishments of alumnae and also serve as a motivation for current students — male and female — about the options open to people who study sciences at Holy Cross,” says Bianca Sculimbrene, assistant professor of chemistry.
A total of 21 posters are on display, and are grouped by department. Alumnae featured range from graduates of the first class of women who attended Holy Cross all four years (Class of 1976) to women who studied on Mount St. James within in the last decade.
The posters will be up for the remainder of the spring semester, Sculimbrene says. They were designed by Sharon Matys, desktop publishing specialist in Graphic Arts.
Here are the alumnae highlighted, and the location of each group of posters:
Biology Display (in the walkway between O’Neil Hall and Swords Atrium)
Chemistry Display (near Haberlin 230, the chemistry department office)
Math/Computer Science Display (outside of the math/computer science lab, Swords 219)
Physics Display (opposite the eating area on the second floor of Haberlin, near Haberlin 219)
